This year’s Great American Smokeout on Thursday will be the 37th such event. The goal, says Ryan Kauffman, isn’t necessarily to quit for life, but rather to encourage people to take the day off from using tobacco. Organizers will have a booth at Lakeside from 11:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. with free quit support.

‘Smokeout’ about taking day off from tobacco
Cathryn Klusmeier is from a multi-generational family in Arkansas. But it wasn't until she left home that she felt the literary pull of her southern roots, and began an extended work of creative non-fiction. She's one of six Fellows under thirty residing in Sitka for seven weeks. She'll read from her manuscript during an Open Studio, 7 PM August 28 in the Yaw Art building. Klusmeier is also inviting the public to a short memoir workshop tonight (7-29-14) in her studio, 8 PM Room 107 of the Yaw Art building. more
